Hello All,

On the webserver I need to create a rewrite rule. Please suggest how I can use the RewriteCond to create a if then else logic, such that,

 if I receive a URL with request parameter (showNavigation=y)
  then
     RewriteRule to use the https url,
Else if the request parameter (showNavigation=n)
then
  RewriteRule to use the http url.


I need your expert advice on below RewriteRule . Please suggest how I can add the RewriteCond to check for the showNavigation value.

RewriteRule ^showNavigation=y$ https://hostname/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/JobListingsHandler?storeId=10051&catalogId=10001&showNavigation=y&langId=-3  [NC,L,R]

RewriteRule ^showNavigation=n$ http://hostname/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/JobListingsHandler?storeId=10051&catalogId=10001&showNavigation=n&langId=-3  [NC,L,R]

Thanks

The query string is not testable from RewriteRule.  You need to use RewriteCond instead:
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} showNavigation=y [NC]
RewriteRule /?(.*)$ https://mydomain.com/$1 [QSA,NC,R,L]

Open in new window

While you're at it, you should probably test if HTTPS is already lit up.  See here for more information: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_rewrite.html#rewritecond
